Fire Station Open Day. Saturday 18 May, 10am – 2pm.

Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) will hold its annual Open Day on Saturday 18 May 2019 with fire stations across the State giving visitors a personal glimpse into Australia’s busiest fire and rescue service. They will have the opportunity to hop on a fire truck and chat with firefighters to learn more about what they do every day.

Open Day includes safety demonstrations, fire station tours and the chance to inspect equipment and trucks used by our firefighters when responding to all kinds of fire and rescue emergencies. There will also be an array of activities for all children who attend.

It’s a great time to also speak to firefighters first-hand about fire safety in the home, including how to install and maintain smoke alarms and how to develop a home escape plan to ensure they can quickly and safely escape in the event of a fire.

Participating locations include: Castle Hill, Baulkham Hills, Beecroft, Seven Hills, Parramatta, Schofields, Riverstone, Blacktown, Windsor and Hornsby Stations all participated in the Open Day. More details can be found here.
